In the postapocalyptic world torn by tyranny and barbarism, six brave heroes fight against the Prohibition imposed upon them. Deep in the catacombs, they built their own small breweries with extraordinary skill, love for detail and a stark inventiveness, for which they have to thank their irrepressible will to survive. Well hidden from watching eyes, they tinker tirelessly on their excellent beer creations. For the “brave six” (as they are named by sympathisers), the beer brewery is more than just a factory.
It is a feeling of life. A touch of freedom. The only beam of light which they still have in these dark days. Each barrel of beer brings with it the danger of being discovered and having to live the rest of their lives in an office. But, with the firm goal of a revolution before their eyes, the “brave six” nevertheless are ready to fight in spite of the enormous risk for their dream. They thus file in and out of their brewery day in and day out in order to create the best beer specialties this world has ever seen (and drunk).
Imperial Stout is the personal speciality of the brewery elder.
Before prohibition, he introduced a prestigious institution in which young people could study the craft of beer brewing. He is known under the name “The Master.”
It was he who founded the bold society in order to fight against the imposed Prohibition. Since the master’s face was injured in an ambush, he hid this under a low-hanging hat. He wanted to avoid his hideous appearance being associated with the powerful, but very harmonic taste of his Imperial Stout.
Inspired by the bright red hair of his daughter, the father of the stranger is seen as the discoverer of the German Red Beer.
When Prohibition proper began, he didn’t want to concede without a fight, and hid the recipe in a secret place in the country to protect it against being discovered by others. The recipe for the unique taste and the secret for the powerful, bright red color of the beer remained lost for a long time.Read more
At this time, “The Stranger” swore revenge on the others. She is the only descendant of the family who knows the exact recipe of the particularly powerful red beer. She formed the Steam Brew Group, which had the perfect equipment for her specialty. In order to not be able to be found by the others as a member of the family, she hid her red hair under a hat and left her identity a mystery. Thus, she is just called “The Stranger,” because in the underground, no one knew her face. Even “The Master” can only wonder whether the intensively roasted malt of her unique creation is responsible for the red color of her hair.
“The Spark,” as he is called on the street, has already seen a lot.
At one time, he was “The Master’s” best student. But, when the young student established a beer creation that seemed improper to his teacher, he left the country in anger and travelled around the world. On his adventures, he learned a lot of new things, and regretted again and again that he no longer had contact with his old master, who was like a father to him.Read more
When he heard about the resistance, he decided to return. “The Spark” asked him for forgiveness and entered into the service of the freedom fighters. Thanks to his extraordinary talent and his experience, although he was still young in years, he was not too long until he became a part of the brave four. His specialty is India Pale Ale, the recipe and preparation of which he learned in his adventures and perfected with the help of “The Master”.
The little sister of “The Spark”: Shiny is back!
For not long at all, a mysterious, previously hidden combatant has made itself known. But it did not stay long in the city, as, just a few days ago, there was talk in the underground of a new beer creation, which has been creating a frenzy on the streets. “Shiny’s” IPA is clearly different from the stamp of the brave resistance brewer, but it nevertheless has the same goal: Revolution!
It is called “The Sister” as a camouflage and protective shield for itself and its mother. Trust and openness had already cost too many innocents their lives ...Read more
There are many legends about the young woman. It is said that she was born outside of the city and had to flee the country with her mother, as there was a house search. She brought her profession – she had the same talent for brewing as her older brother – with her on her travels.
At a small farm, she had a lot of time to perfect the craft of beer brewing. There, far from the city brewing units, she worked on her masterwork. In her Session IPA, you taste the distance from the city, the fruity-intensive intensiveness, and the freshness of the early year in the country. When, one night, she was betrayed, and the Prohibition police burned down the farm to its foundation stones, she fled with her mother in the last moment thanks to an old secret passage on the farm.
In this night, as well, their mother told her everything about her brother, the revolution, the play for power in the city and the corruption that lurked behind every corner. After she got her mother into safety, “The Sister“ sallied out in the direction of the city, in order to support the resistance and to make her contribution as a part of the Steam Brew Group.
The bold "farmer" is a brewer as well as a harbinger of resistance!
For some time, the resistance has also been supported by the surrounding outlying districts. The most influential of the helpers is called “the farmer” in the city. He thus cultivates smaller wheat fields in large forest clearings – already large enough to supply the resistance breweries in the city and to be able to brew his own Wheat Pale Ale, endowed with three different sorts of malt.
Without tiring, “the farmer” orders his fields anew and offers wheat seeds, because the Prohibition watch always has him on his toes. His small fields are always being discovered again and again, and the valuable raw materials fall into the flames as victim. Still the hardest part of his work, however, is the smuggling of his full-bodied beer specialty and the freshly harvested malt into the city. He thus has to do everything himself, because, until he reaches his goal, the small, underground brewery, he cannot trust anyone.
The “Snake” has an exciting past and is endowed with useful talent.
As an orphan and raised without a homeland, “the Snake” spent her childhood in various underground gangs, which fought for their own existence rather than being part of the resistance movement. Petty theft and vandalism were the order of the day. The name is thanks to her cheeky temperament and her slim appearance. Her gangs sent her plundering in narrow shafts and through impassable holes. When her group got into an ambush by the state authority, it was “the Spark” who was able to save her at the last moment, and who offered her shelter.Read more
In thanks for his selfless act, she devoted herself to the cause of the underground brewery and learned the craft step by step. She quickly discovered her passion for fruity notes of flavor and, because “the Snake” could never keep to the rules, she also wanted to stir up the craft beer scene with an unconventional drink. Her IPA Radler symbolizes a refreshing new start against the Prohibition mainstream and is the new attention-getter among Steam Brew beers.
